Listen To Fruit Bats' Rendition Of A Bing Crosby Holiday Classic

Fruit Bats transformed the Bing Crosby holiday classic “It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas” into a modern folk song for the holiday compilation album Holiday Rules.

Eric D. Johnson does not over do the lyrics by trying to mimic Crosby, but instead provides soothing vocals for the track. He’s accompanied by a great list of artists on Holiday Rocks, including Paul McCartney, the Shins and many more contemporary artists.

Holidays Rule is out now through Starbucks’ music label Hear Music and Concord.
